Dendrochronology and treeline dynamics within arctic and alpine localities in western and central CanadaDownload
The transition from forest to tundra, commonly called treeline, is expected to advance, particularly in northern latitudes. Treeline in two subarctic locales: the western Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, and the western Hudson Bay Lowlands southeast of Churchill, Manitoba were studied,...
Social-ecological reclamation in the Northwest Territories: A framework for healing human-caribou relationsDownload
The impacts of mining activity on human-caribou relationships in the Northwest Territories have been a focus of study in both the natural and social sciences for decades. Guided by Łutsel K’e Dene First Nation elders and harvesters, this study used dendrochronology methods and best practices for...
Spatial and temporal stand dynamics of mature lodgepole pine forests of the Canadian Rocky MountainsDownload
In forest ecosystems, structure and species composition change over time as a function of ageing and minor disturbances and it is important to understand these changes for predicting forest productivity and habitat suitability for other plant and animal biota. Disturbances play a major role in...
Stable isotope dendrochemistry of needles, twigs, and tree rings were used to identify the impacts of a changing global atmosphere in two separate environments with different anthropogenic loads: the boreal forest surrounding the Athabasca Oil Sands region (AOSR), Alberta, Canada, subject to a...
As climates warm and extreme climatic events occur with more frequency and severity, maintaining forest health and productivity may involve planting seed sources from warmer, drier areas. To guide such reforestation strategies, this work analyzes the risks of both climate change and assisted...
